Stations of the Cross (Way of the Cross) – Fourth Station
Stations of the Cross, Fourth Station – Prayer for the Fourth Station of the Cross – Before the Fifth Station.
Jesus is Met by His Blessed Mother
V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.
R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Consider the meeting of the Son and the Mother, which took place on this journey. Their looks became like so many arrows to wound those hearts which loved each other so tenderly.
MY sweet Jesus, by the sorrow You did experience in this meeting, grant me the grace of a devoted love for Your holy Mother. And You, my Queen, who was overwhelmed by sorrow, obtain for me a continual and tender remembrance of the Passion of your son.
I love You, Jesus, my love, above all things; I repent with my whole heart for having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always; and then do with me what you will.
Quae moerebat, et dolebat
Pia mater, dum videbat
Nati poenas inclyti
Christ above in torments hangs;
She beneath beholds the pangs
Of her dying glorious Son.
